Klay Thompson dropped a game-high 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting on Sunday, going 7-of-11 from deep with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 35 minutes.
Klay struggled on Friday with eight points on 3-of-14 shooting, but otherwise he's been on fire -- excluding that dud, he's averaging 27.7 points and 5.3 triples on 57.1 percent shooting over his previous six games. He single-handedly won the 3-point category for plenty of owners this week, making a ridiculous 21 treys. Mar 26 - 11:03 PM

Klay Thompson lit up the Thunder for 34 points and seven 3-pointers in Monday's 111-95 win over the Thunder.

This was Thompson's 19th career game with seven or more 3-pointers and that's four straight wins for the Warriors since their three-game losing streak. Thompson finished 12-of-21 from the field in 32 minutes with six rebounds, two assists and two steals, but his owners will want to make sure he's active for Tuesday's road game vs. Dallas on the second night of a back-to-back set. With Kevin Durant (knee) iffy to return for the regular season, Thompson's owners will continue to see a bump in production.
Mar 20 - 11:39 PM

Klay Thompson hit 8-of-11 shots and five 3-pointers on his way to a 21-point first quarter on Thursday, the seventh time in his career he's scored at least 20 points in a quarter.

He finished with 29 points, four rebounds, five assists and a block on 12-of-20 shooting in just 29 minutes. Klay's best quarter ever was a 37-point job against the Kings on Jan. 23, 2015 and he didn't even flirt with that one tonight. The Warriors won 122-92 and the game was never close, mainly because of what Klay did to the Magic at the opening bell.
Mar 17 - 1:18 AM

Klay Thompson scored 28 points on 10-of-22 shooting vs. the 76ers on Tuesday.

He hit five 3-pointers in 38 minutes, adding two rebounds, one assist and one turnover. Thompson has now scored 25+ points in four out of his last five games, and he's averaging 20.3 FGAs since Kevin Durant (knee) went down -- he averaged 18.3 FGAs in February and 16.2 FGAs in January. The peripheral stats haven't been there lately, but Thomson should be able to flirt with early-round value the rest of the way with an increased role on offense.
Mar 15 - 1:47 AM

Klay Thompson (rest), Draymond Green (rest), Stephen Curry (rest) and Andre Iguodala (rest) will all return to action for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

All these guys were rested on Saturday night, but they'll be back on the floor without any restrictions for Tuesday's matchup with the 76ers, so feel free to get them active. Shaun Livingston and Kevon Looney will head back to the bench, and neither of those guys can be considered viable targets in most leagues.

Klay Thompson (rest) will not play against the Spurs on Saturday.

Thompson actually turned in a gem on Friday night with 30 points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Wolves. The Warriors have a really tough schedule right now, so they'll sit their stars on a national TV game. We should get a heavy dose of Pat McCaw, Ian Clark, Shaun Livingston and Matt Barnes.
Mar 10 - 10:59 PM

Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 25 points during Wednesday's 99-86 home loss, making 11-of-23 shots with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks.

Thompson has over 200 made three-pointers this season, which ties him with Steph Curry as the only players with 200+ triples in five consecutive seasons. Splash Brothers, indeed. Their combined 48 points weren't enough tonight, however, and Steve Kerr hinted that he might rest key players to avoid "running [them] ragged." Golden State looked tired in the fourth quarter tonight and owners should be vigilant monitoring Warriors news in the coming weeks. It helps that the Spurs are breathing down their necks, with just 1.5 games separating the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds.
Mar 9 - 1:50 AM

Klay Thompson hit 5-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points, three assists and a block in 30 minutes of Monday's 119-111 win over the Hawks.

Thompson scored 29 points on Sunday, but has now scored 16 or fewer points in three of his last four games. But as long as Kevin Durant is in street clothes, which could be for the rest of the season, Thompson should have a lot more games like his 29-pointer than the lackluster lines he's been producing over the last 10 days.
Mar 6 - 10:46 PM

Klay Thompson scored 29 points on 8-of-21 shooting Sunday, to go with four 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 37 minutes.

Thompson has been struggling a bit with his shot over the past three games, but as one of the most prolific shooters to ever play the game, it should be only a matter of time until he turns things around in that department. Thompson was working with a 25.7 usage rate prior to the Kevin Durant (knee) injury, but in the past two games with KD on the sidelines, his usage rate has risen to 30.3. He has an excellent chance of flirting with top-20 value to close out the year sans KD.
Mar 5 - 6:43 PM

Klay Thompson made just 5-of-22 from the field for 13 points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

Not good. Thompson made just 1-of-11 from deep in his game following a 3-of-13 from deep on Tuesday. If you're an optimist, Thompson's usage rate should be going way up based on how he has a 32.0 usage rate without Kevin Durant this season -- it's just 23.6 with him. Thompson's stats should look more like last season.
Mar 2 - 11:13 PM

Klay Thompson (sore heel/arch) torched the Kings on Wednesday for 35 points on 12-of-18 shooting, hitting 7-of-12 triples with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and zero turnovers.

Thompson wound up missing just one game with the injury and it seems like a pure precaution, so he shouldn't be limited during All-Star weekend. He drained his first five shots tonight and keyed the Warriors' game-changing run in the third quarter, and would have had an even bigger game if it weren't a blowout. He'll be busy this week as a participant in the All-Star game and as the defending champ in the 3-point shootout.
Feb 16 - 1:27 AM

Klay Thompson (sore right heel) will play on Wednesday vs. the Kings.

After sitting out on Monday vs. the Nuggets, Thompson confirmed that his injury is a "minor thing" and it sounds like it was a maintenance day. Thompson's owners can go ahead and pencil him back into lineups, while we can expect to see Patrick McCaw return to the bench.
Feb 14 - 7:41 PM

Klay Thompson (sore right heel) will not play on Monday vs. the Nuggets.

This sounds minor, but the Warriors are going to play it safe with the All-Star break coming up this weekend. For now, it's unclear if Thompson will play on Wednesday vs. the Kings. Patrick McCaw is a candidate to start in Thompson's absence, but he's not worth picking up in most season-long leagues for now. Andre Iguodala should be more involved and the rest of the starters should get a small bump.
Feb 13 - 1:56 PM

Klay Thompson scored 36 points against the Grizzlies on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists and eight 3-pointers.

It'll be one of the most overshadowed offensive gems of the season. His eight treys match his season high and this was his fourth 30-point game of the year. Thompson is having a monster February so far, averaging 28.0 points, 4.8 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.4 steals and 5.4 treys in those five games. He should get plenty of open looks with the Thunder focusing on Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry on Saturday night.
Feb 11 - 12:31 AM

Klay Thompson scored 28 points during a win over the Bulls on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, three assists and six 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

It was his 27th birthday and his 400th career start. He was away from the team to attend his grandfather’s funeral and made it back with plenty of time today. Thompson is also heating up over his last five, averaging 26.2 points, 5.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 4.2 treys. He’ll get a tough matchup against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
